If I am seeking a zoning variance, should I present evidence of support from my neighbors?

In all zoning cases, the Board schedules a hearing. Neighbors may or may not choose to appear. However, the Board always welcomes the opinions of neighbors who may be affected by zoning variance. Therefore, while not required, input from neighbors can be helpful. If a neighbor does not choose to appear, a letter indicating support for or objection to an application may be submitted as evidence.
